End September – Fishing poor

October 2nd, 2015

Fishing at the end of the season is remarkably poor – at a time (September) which is normally a very productive period.

Almost no fish at Tory Island – reef or sand.

Wrecks simply not producing any numbers of fish.

Blue Sharks seemed to have departed at start September.

Very few Tope

Fishing at Limeburner is moderate for Gurnards, Whiting, Ling, Doggies, few Spurdog, few Cod.

Mackeral extremely inconsistent

There are however, huge numbers of Bluefin Tuna around, which may help to explain reductions in other stocks – I have witnessed Tuna 50m off the rocks at Tory Island, and not on┬ájust one occasion
